Dentures

Dentures

If you have lost all of your natural teeth, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit not only your appearance but also your health. You’ll be able to eat and speak – two things that most people often take for granted. Complete dentures also provide support for cheeks and lips.

We offer two types of dentures:

  1. An Immediate Complete Denture is inserted as soon as remaining teeth are removed. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
  2. A Conventional Full Denture is made and inserted after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. Healing may take several months.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are over-dentures fixed to the gums by implants. For patients with an uncomfortable or loose-fitting denture, stabilizing it with implants can be a more comfortable and functional solution.

Implants are placed in the jaw where they heal firmly in place by the surrounding bone. Attachments are placed in the underside of the denture that connect to the implants. When placed in the mouth, the denture snaps onto the implants, keeping it stable and secure.

What are the benefits of dentures supported by implants?

  • People who opt for implant-supported dentures are more confident when they talk, laugh, and eat in public. You’ll never have to worry about your false teeth slipping or falling out while you eat or are engaged in conversation.
  • Implant-supported dentures are far more comfortable because they are secure and feel like natural teeth. There is also less irritation of gum tissue as pain and canker sores are common problems for patients with conventional dentures.
  • Patients with conventional dentures have difficulty with speaking clearly. Slurred speech and clicking noises are common problems. Implant-supported dentures can help you relax and talk easily with a more clear and natural voice.
  • Best of all, with implant-supported dentures, there is no need to use denture adhesives.
